How it works
Micro-needling is the insertion of very fine short needles into the skin for the purpose of rejuvenation. They create tiny punctures in the skin to help stimulate the natural production of collagen ad elastin, improve skin texture, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. It is also called collagen induction therapy. Needles may be inserted to a depth of 0.25- 1.5mm depending on the patient, area, and condition being treated. It is important to do this with a trained professional to ensure proper technique, sterile equipment, and customization based on individual needs.
Micro-needling helps stimulate collagen production in the skin, which can help improve the texture and tone of the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. Micro-needling also brightens the complexion by promoting healthy cell production and improved circulation, which leads to a brighter and more even complexion ad reduces the appearance of hyperpigmented spots.
The tiny punctures created by micro-needling help increase the absorption of skincare products, making them more effective.
How it works
In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, high-intensity light-emitting diodes (LEDs) utilizing specific, proven wavelengths of light can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect in human tissue. Research has shown that phototherapy can increase circulation, accelerate tissue repair, kill acne bacteria, decrease inflammation, improve skin tone, texture and clarity, as well as ease muscle and joint pain, stiffness, spasm, and arthritis.
Research indicates that cells absorb particles of light (photons) and transform their energy into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the form of energy that cells utilize. The resulting elevation of ATP is then used to power metabolic processes; synthesize DNA, RNA, proteins, enzymes, and other products needed to repair or regenerate cell components; foster mitosis or cell proliferation; and restore homeostasis. Simply put, the LED light source provides compromised cells with added energy so the cells performance is enhanced. For example, fibroblast cells will increase collagen and elastic production in connective tissue.
